If you read the whole article, you will see by context that some industry insiders believe that Spaceport America as a passenger hub, might actually be a less desirable location compared to other spaceports more proximal to the North American coastline. It makes sense to me.
If one could possibly land somewhere other than a radioactive inland desert 35 miles from the nearest Wal-Mart; with no other intelligent life for dozens of miles around you, wouldn't you at least desire to be somewhere near a minimally-qualified and properly-staffed trauma facility?
Before answering this question, please think like a billionaire... or his insurance agent... or his stock broker... or his Senator, etc.
